Swimmer Death near Moose River

The body of a swimmer reported missing in the Moose River has been found.

The woman has been identified as 24-year-old Brittany Rickard of Moose Factory Island.

On Tuesday Police say two intoxicated males they found on the river reported Rickard missing.

The Moose River connects to James Bay and is known for its strong undertow and currents.
